Israelis rally again protesting judicial overhaul

STORY: The hard-right government's drive to limit Supreme Court powers while increasing its own power in selecting judges has caused alarm in Israel and abroad about the country's democratic checks and balances.

The protests have swelled for weeks.

Netanyahu, upon departing late on Wednesday (March 15) for a state visit to Germany, which has voiced concern over the judicial plan, said a proposed compromise outlined by President Isaac Herzog would not restore balance to the branches of government.
